“Is pneumonia contagious?”
“How much water should I drink?”
“How many calories should I eat?”
“What is Gluten?”

The trend toward taking control of our health has only just begun. With online resources, forums and medical chat rooms, it’s no wonder people everywhere are taking advantage of information ready at their fingertips to figure out what may be bugging them.
